I know reactions to the US cover of Tonya Hurley's The Blessed have been pretty mixed (though I, for one, love the creepy crap right out of it), so I'm curious to see how it will fare against the UK version (the model of which you may recall from the revamp of Gabrielle Zevin's Birthright series). So, my darlings, let me know your thoughts in the comments - what do you think of these covers? Would you reach for the book based on either, and which would you rather have on your own shelves?
Which one did it better?
EDIT: As many have mentioned, the US cover is reversible (which I think is genius), and I believe this is the reverse cover (or back cover? not sure), if anyone's interested.
Last Week on FFO: Jill Hathaway's Slide went up against itself in a US/UK face off. The results were pretty mixed, but the US was able to pull out the win. Personally, I'm still torn, and though I intend to buy this book at some point, I'm not sure which I want to see on my shelves. There's something mysterious and thriller-y about the US cover, and though the UK cover sort of looks like a poster for a teen slasher flick, it pops and my eyes are drawn back to it. Hmm...
